UPDATE: Disney Seeks Permission to Use Drones for Nighttime Entertainment at Theme Parks

Disney Drone ProposalsBack in summer of 2014, Stitch Kingdom broke news that Walt Disney Parks and Resorts was working on an intricate system using controlled drones to supplement its nighttime entertainment, proposing to: use drones to control massive marionettes (such as an exampled Jack Skellington) and/or use drones to carry screens that could act as what they dubbed ‘flixels,’ or ‘floating pixels.’

In late October of 2015, Disney decided to move ahead with these plans by filing an exemption from the FAA under section 333 which governs the commercial use of drones. The application was published on December 31 and has not yet been answered by the FAA.

‘Zombies and Cheerleaders’ Undead at Disney Channel; Resurrected as ‘Zoms and Poms’

We first broke the news that Disney Channel was working on a new musical series titled ‘Zombies and Cheerleaders‘ back in June of 2011, nearly four and a half years ago. While the series was expected to debut in 2012, the series was virtually dead air.

Today, due to an extreme number of domain registrations by The Walt Disney Company, it would appear the project is all but dead — undead, if you will — and may have been re-titled to ‘Zoms and Poms’ or ‘Zoms vs Poms,’ as the registrations suggest the exact title has not yet been finalized.
